-On the fateful night of November 23, 2003, a 22-year old boy was killed in a DUI car accident.
-A grieving father secretly maintained a memorial for him, tending to it every night, on the spot where the fatal crash happened.
-Now, 13 years after, he received a message from a billionaire who owns the private land where he set up the memorial.
KAMI came across this riveting story of Ray Olson, a faithful father who has been missing his only son since he passed away.
Every night for the past 13 years, Ray went to this vacant lot in Richmond to take care of the makeshift memorial he put-up for his son, Raymond.
Raymond Olson was killed in a car crash in 2003 when he ran into a drunk driver.
He has been visiting and maintaining the area only during the night, for fear someone would see him and tell him to leave the property.
He would set up flowers, put some candles and statuettes of angels, among others. He would be by the area sometimes at 3am just talking to his departed son.
Now, unbeknownst to Ray, the property belonged to billion dollar company Chevron!
And Chevron bosses wanted to renovate the land, so they left a note on the mysterious memorial informing whoever was maintaining the area.
That’s when Ray decided to show up and identify himself. Rey had prepared himself for what they would have to say to him. He thought the worst was to come - he would be asked to leave.
Or so he thought.
Chevron bosses actually offered to build a more permanent and decent memorial for his son Raymond!
It was a stone slab with a plaque, which had pictures of his son on it. As if that wasn’t enough, they even set up a steel bench right next to it!
He was told, “This is your spot, Ray. You no longer have to come at night.”
